Spontaneous Spring Shopping

The other night I randomly decided to go shopping, I needed to find some outfits for a couple of upcoming parties/events I was going to. I was trying to avoid Nordstroms because I know that they have this adorable coral Kate Spade Bag that I have literally been having dreams about, but am not ready to drop $500 on…

Isn't she so pretty? 🙂 Sigh. It may be an early birthday gift to myself...

So I took a trip to Marshalls instead- I was so excited with my finds! (Well most of them)

I tried on this super cute pants/jumpsuit, but it was SO huge! I was literally swimming/tripping over it. 😦

I guess us short girls have to stick to our rompers… 😉

Ahh...can't wait for Summer country concerts 🙂

So, back to my shopping trip… I was looking for color! I’ve been trying to buy more (only) colorful clothes lately. Look at how cute these two dresses that I snagged are!

This green dress is perfect for summer- I actually thought it was a romper when I picked it up. It's so light and can be dressed up for work, or down for a picnic/weekend. I was excited about this find, and it was only $17 🙂

This was the winning ticket...I'm in love with this dress! Aside from the vibrant orange color, it is so comfortable, forgiving, and it was only $25 🙂

I was so thrilled with my dress finds, and I was completely content… until I walked by this black DKNY purse. I just could not turn away (probably because it reminded me of my Kate Spade dream bag :(…)! Every time I walked by I found myself picking it up, trying it on, feeling the ridiculously smooth leather, then putting it back. But every time I left I’d immediately turn right back around to make sure nobody else had grabbed it. The more I thought about it, I figured it’d be the perfect purse for work, going out, or any special occasion…and truthfully I don’t have a small bag like that. I had to have it…

Swoon!

When I got home I discovered all of it’s functionalities! It appears as a traditional 2-strap handbag, but can be converted to a 1-strap shoulder or cross body bag. How convenient. My purchase was justified 🙂

AND when I opened it up, I discovered that it came with a sham tucked inside! That is very rare for a Marshalls purchase!

What have you picked up lately? Anything fun or colorful?
